Officials are investigating how two cargo vessels came to collide in the Welland Canal on Saturday during what should have been a routine manoeuvre. Two vessels collided while transiting Canada’s Welland Canal, in opposite directions last Saturday. In the incident, the Florence Spirit, an 8,935 dwt, McKeil Marine operated, Canadian-flag, general cargo ship collided with the 12,744 dwt general cargo ship Alanis, operated by German based Rambow Reederei and flying the flag of Antigua and Barbuda.  The incident was captured on video.
